Du’aa to have wet dream

Fatwaa ID: 2358

Question:
السلام علیکم ورحمة وبركاته

If a person doesn’t have a wet dream for very long and he fears that he may resort to masturbation then will it be permissible for him to make dua for a wet dream. Is there any hadith preventing masturbation

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Dear brother,
Wet dreams are from the shaytaan. Nocturnal emissions, however, are natural occurrences. You should not ask for any, especially a wet dream. If you feel the tension to release and you are not married, then let nature take its course. Do not engage in masturbation. That is a major sin. Consider fasting and remaining engaged in productive works to curb your desires. Life is tempting and filled with desires. When you control your desires for the pleasure of Allaah Ta’aala, you will achieve eternal bliss and taste the sweetness of imaan and life.

You may recite the following profound prophetic du’aas,

اللَّهُمَّ فَاطِرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ رَبَّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَمَلِيكَهُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ نَفْسِي وَمِنْ شَرِّ الشَّيْطَانِ وَشِرْكِهِ وَأَنْ أَقْتَرِفَ عَلَى نَفْسِي سُوءًا أَوْ أَجُرَّهُ إِلَى مُسْلِمٍ
“O Allaah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen! There is none worthy of worship except You, Lord of everything and its Owner. I seek refuge in You from the evil of my soul and from the evil of the shaytaan and his partners, or that I should do some evil to myself or bring it upon a Muslim.” [Tirmidhi 3529, Abu Dawood 5083]

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ سَمْعِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ بَصَرِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ لِسَانِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ قَلْبِي، وَمِنْ شَرِّ مَنِيِّي.
“O Allaah! I seek refuge in you from the evil of my hearing, the evil of my sight, the evil of my tongue, the evil of my heart and the evil of my sperm.” [Abu Dawood 1551, Tirmidhi 3492]

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
